You may not know her name, but if you are a New Hoper who attends the Sunday gatherings, you have probably interacted with Mary Jo. It's very likely that she's given you coffee or a handshake or a smile.
She's friendly. She's welcoming. She's disarming. She's interesting. And she spends the weekend spreading love and friendship.
I was really surprised this past weekend when she shared with me that she is very shy. She said a lot of times she prefers the background. But at New Hope, where she is surrounded by people she considers family, she comes out of her shell.
I love that! Thanks Mary Jo for spreadin' the love!
